Montpellier, un atelier de potiers-faïenciers, entre Moyen Age et époque moderne

Abstract : The research on the faience workshops at Montpellier, which the excavations Faubourg du Pila-Saint-Gély (17th-early 18th century) has made substantial progress thanks to the discovery of new kilns and wase deposits (15th-16th centuries). The production site, mentioned since 1367 in written sources, links to the ceramics used in other contemporary archaeological contexts. The discarded ware is characterized by an interesting variety of techniques (firing in reducing or oxidizing atmosphere), and types ranking from glazed ware with or without slip to monochrome faiences, thus confirming the polyvalence of urban industries in late and post-mediaeval times.
